Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie take a whirlwind 27-hour vacation without the kids


This Us Weekly story reads like a paid advertisement for a luxury resort, but in the resort’s defense, I think they were just overcome with (Brange)lunacy that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie came to their little establishment for a no-kids-allowed date night. It was more than a date night, actually. Brad and Angie spent the night, and Us Weekly estimated their time at the resort to “27 hours”. That’s a lot of sexy knife action. Keep him in line, Angie.

Alone at last! Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ditched their brood of six for a 27-hour escape at the luxe Amangiri resort in Lake Powell, Utah on March 26 and March 27.

“Brad said he was enjoying a little mommy and daddy time,” a source tells the new Us Weekly of Pitt, 47, who jetted from New Orleans (where he’s been filming Cogan’s Trade) to meet Jolie, 35.

Checking in at 2 p.m., they enjoyed a late dinner and flew their private plane over Lake Powell the next morning. Suites at the resort — which features stunning desert views, full-service spa, yoga and “floatation” pavilions plus a fitness center and beauty salon — go for $3,300 per night. Says the source, “They liked the downtime.”

One weekend before, Jolie touched down in New Orleans with their six kids — Maddox, 9, Zahara, 6, Pax, 7, Shiloh, 4, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 2, — for a lowkey visit with Pitt near his Big Easy film set.

(The couple have explained in the past that they never schedule film projects concurrently, in order to ensure that the kids are looked after.)

“Brad and Angie have a truly loving, caring, romantic relationship,” another pal recently told Us Weekly. “They try to make it possible for to be together as much as possible, no matter how tight their schedules are. That’s what makes them so successful in love.”

[From Us Weekly]

So what about those reports that Angelina only brought the kids to NOLA for a quick weekend and then she left again? I don’t know. I can’t keep track of them. I think she and kids went to NOLA, stayed for a few days, then she and Brad had this little getaway, and then they split up, with him going to NOLA and her going to LA? But seriously, I have no idea. In Touch Weekly’s theory (via Jezebel) is that Angelina only went to NOLA in the first place to “check up on Brad” because she was concerned he was smoking cigarettes in between flirting with actresses. ITW says Angelina left because she “overstayed her welcome.” But then why did they go to Utah for a romantic getaway?!?

    Why no pics?

  2. NayNay says:

    For some weird reason, I believe these two are gonna make it last, for good.

  3. poppy says:

    do you have any idea how many things they do without pictures. Do you want to see inside their bedroom too.

  4. cd says:

    This trip doesn’t seem out of character for them. I remember after Shiloh was born, Angelina gave an interview to Vogue magazine where she said Brad and her make time for each other by taking random road trips together.

  5. Jeri says:

    Neither of them have the magic looks they used to have. They’re now simply ok, they were once magnificent.

    Time gets to everyone sooner or later.

    The greasy pouf hairdo makes Brad look like he got a hair piece or implants. Sorta Charlie Sheen looking. Explains all those months of never being seen without a hat.

  6. Melanie says:

    I wish I could see what their bedroom looks like.

  7. Kim123 says:

  8. mln76 says:

    I still have the feeling there is some sort of announcement coming soon.

  9. munchies says:

    i laugh evrytime i see that viv’s pic. funny and cute

  10. N.D. says:

    Good for them. Wish I had their means to organize such getaways.

  11. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    LOL you sound so confused in the last paragraph. Uh tabloids print huge big fact lies and exaggerate on really simple events. I doubt neither publication is half way right.

  12. serena says:

    Good for them, they still get hot to eachothers.

  13. Stephie says:

    I love that last photo (laughing/smiling hands on shoulders).

  14. Raven Sparrow says:

    Yeah, me too! I want to see the inside of their bedroom! And I also want to see a recent photo of Angie in a bikini but that’s never going to happen.

    I love her fuzzy white dress. Must be really soft to touch. Makes me want to hug her.

  15. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    I can keep up with them either… dayum

  16. albeli says:

    He looks like a troll in the last pic.

  17. jen says:

    As much as I love gossip about these two, there needs to be an actual story to keep me awake. It’s not really headline-worthy if a couple take a one-night vacay. Give me some dirt!

  18. rissa says:

    im from lake powell. i heard they were here but didnt really believe it. the rooms are very nice.

  19. Sue says:

    Why is it that we never see stories like this about Johnny Depp and his partner or Matt Damon and his partner, etc. I would love to know what they do for down time together! Do you guys think that Brad and Angie encourage these people to talk or at least say it is OK to talk to the magazine?

  20. lrm says:

    i bet AJ wears a nice, classic black one piece, not a bikini!
    she is, if anything, an old school iconic hollywood gal/woman….IMO of course
    and she knows the value of a one piece suit.
    or, maybe it’ll be calvin klein leather, but still one piece LOL

  21. lisa says:

    I saw pictures of the place they reportedly stayed.. It is simply gorgeous.

    They have both talked about taking time off for each other. Which to me must be a huge MUST because of 6 young children. taking a few hours off well excellent..

    and not wanting to sound like a pervert. I would love to just see a picture of their home. Angie said “Brad makes a beautiful home”.. damn as a woman that sounds super sexy.

    and regarding their one stays 20 forever. They seem to fine with aging. Look at what they have..

  22. hottathanholywatta says:

    they are the modern “Liz and Dick” (elizabeth taylor and richard burton) two gorgeous, successful and humanitarian individuals

  23. Rena says:

    @Kim 123, an overload of whatever, all those jumbled ramblings, lol. I read at olv that Brad is through with his CT role tomorrow. Just another online comment that may be true or not like all those that you posted. You kinda sound obsessed you know. LoL

  24. kristin21 says:

    Brad Pitt has lost his appeal.. Angelina has sucked it out of him.. and she’s not looking all that great these days.. she needs to bring back that short hair that made her look edgy.. now she just looks like a thirty something mother of six.. oh wait..

  25. lisa says:


    LMAO.. I knew all that stuff you posted..

    well I am a loonie… hahahahahah..

    But not sure about when CT is going to wrap. So we will see when we see.

  26. Lynda says:

    all he needs is a 10 minute vacation like any other man.

  27. Lisa Turtle says:

    I find the phenomena of Brangelina absolutely mesmerizing. They are exceptions to every soceital rule. To all the norms that average Joes must follow (yours truly, Lisa Turtle included).

    It’s not so much either of them, it’s the hugeness of their privilege. They are probably the most well-known people in the world. Widely considered the most attractive. Powerful, wealthy.

    Their life is something beyond my comprehension. They blow my mind. SIX kids. Two high powered careers. Enormous wealth. Even better than the wealth, they have flexibility. They can work for a few months, then not. They can up and leave on a vacation whenever they please.

    Me? I’m chained to my desk. I’m lucky if I get two weeks of vacation. My husband works 100+ hours a week to make a good living. Even if we could afford it, we could never take a “random” Wednesday and fly to a luxury resort for a romantic liason.

    Rarely do I look at celebrities with envy, but Brad and Angelina are different. They have everything AND they are HAPPY. Where as, most actors and actresses are unhappy. They put on a surly attitude and demand that the world owes them privacy and they won’t be happy until they get the paparazzi outlawed and all anonymous sources and tabloids shut down. What Brad and Angelina prove is that privacy has nothing to do with happiness. These two have been dragged through the mud, they have no privacy. They are seen, noticed everywhere. But Brangelina proves that celebrities are wrong. The trade off for privacy is the massive liberty of wealth and flexibility of movement.

    Despite the fracas surrounding them, these two have managed to be happy and positive. I feel like they know they are exceptional, they know life has dealt them an incredible hand and they want to share it. The truth is, more than any other celebrity couple, these two fascinate me. Their outlook, their lifestyle, their personalities, their artistic work. I’m very drawn to them, and I think it’s their positivity that makes them so unique in Hollywood.

  28. Lisa Turtle says:

    I’ve always tried to be dispassionate and ambivalent about the Jolie-Pitts… but…. that last post of mine… Damn it!

    Where is Cheyenne?

    I need my official Brangeloonie membership card.

  29. jenn says:

    That little Viv is CUTE!!!

  30. dj says:

    Brad’s hair is that slicked back do for his new movie in NOLA. Maybe they are not as gorgeous as they were in their 20′s but seriously people they are still pretty gorgeous.

  31. Folly says:

    @Lisa turtle;Lol. I envy them,i hope they stay happy and in Love for the rest of their life.

  32. soso says:

    Lisa, loved your post. Privacy doesn’t equate happiness. Just ask Scarlet and Ryan or Gwen and Chris Martin. I bet Gwen wishes Chris would be this supportive to her like Brad is to Angelina.

  33. sorrento says:

    I will always remember how wonderful bp was with the people who suffered hurricane katrina, they are both true humanitarians and thru it all they keep the love…I’m so freakin’ jealous, bless their hearts.

  34. Isa says:

    This is exactly what I need right now. A getaway.

    A babymoon!

  35. Cheyenne says:

    kristin21: she just looks like a thirty something mother of six…

    Well, duh! And he’s a forty-something father of six! And time doesn’t stop for anyone, including them. They look like a middle-age couple enjoying their life together and their family.

  36. Chris says:

    This family seems to travel a hell of a lot. I hope it isn’t too disruptive to their kid’s educations and social lives.

  37. Runs with Scissors says:

    at Kristin21 “now she just looks like a thirty something mother of six..”

    Lol, what ever gets you through the night…

    She doesn’t look like any 30 something mother of six I’ve ever met.

  38. someone says:

    I don’t believe this story, why 27hrs???? what kind of vacation is that???

  39. anon1000 says:

    that’s how to keep the love alive!! spending time alone as a couple even though they have children. too many couples with children neglect the “lover” part of their relationship. brad and angie appreciate this and that is what makes their relationship work.

  40. sandy says:

    this couple is amazing, they don’t seek out attention, it seeks them out because like mentioned above, they are a unique couple, so in a class by themselves, no one in Hollywood is like them, they are not always in your face and that’s why it’s such a treat to see them. TRUE HOLLYWOOD ROYALTIES IN EVERY WAY, i like the Liz/Richard comparison, old Hollywood indeed. they are both still gorgeous.

  41. Cali says:

    I LOVE these two, I hope it lasts for them.

  42. fwozbo says:

    Jeri – exactly what I though about Brad’s hat wearing. I always thought he was getting hair plugs during his “hat” phase but nobody believed me. I am glad you said it, too.

  43. Zelda says:

    She looks so beautiful in that laughing picture.

  44. Dudette says:

    They’ve said they always make time to go on getaways together, just the two of them. In one of Angie’s old interviews, she mentioned that she and Brad often get on bikes and go on short trips.I think that’s really cool. They’re still in love but it takes work to keep the romance going. I like that they make the effort for each other.

  45. Isa says:

    Well, everything comes with a price. The loss of privacy for tremendous wealth and freedom to take a break whenever.

    Apparently they are strong enough to keep it up and deal with all the pressure and turmoil that surrounds them.

    I will give them kudos for that and sticking together even when times were not so good.

  46. lisa says:


    Brad has been wearing hats for 20 years.. So guess those plugs you claim he has gotten took 20 years to grow in.

    It’s not like when he was wearing hats there were no pictures of him without the hats when he did Red Carpets.

    The man has beautiful hair. Why is that such a stretch for you. Every man does not go bald. His father who is in his 70′s still has a head full of hair..

    That hair plug theory is funny. Silly but funny.

  47. wunderkindt says:

    I love those Aman resorts! Just stayed at one in Bhutan. It was great!!!

  48. cici says:

    cheyenne – angie middle aged? lmao.

  49. Kasey says:

    Is it just me or does Angie look like the adult, brunette version of Shiloh when she makes her crazy faces for the camera (sword photo shoot?). I don’t think I ever thought/recognized before how much Shiloh resembles her Mummy.

  50. Sandra says:

    I think all marriages with kids need to take some time off to work on their sexy. I agree with @n
    nay Nay… These two might make it in the long haul… Good for them! Hope their example inspires other relationships to stay together and not divorce because u caught ur man sexting like Eva longoria.

  51. Cheyenne says:

    @cici: She’s no spring chicken any more. And fortunately, she accepts that fact and she’s not trying to dress and act like as if she was 20 years younger than her actual age. I don’t think looking hot is a priority with either of them any more; they have a lot more substantial things going on in their lives (family, careers, etc).

    @someone: 27 hours is called a quick getaway. Every couple with children needs one from time to time.

  52. Cheyenne says:

    @wunderkindt: *sigh* I’m going to the Aman resort in Bhutan or Bali as soon as I hit the lottery.

  53. Amy says:

    I mean Scarlett J. and Sean Penn went to Mexico for a day. Must be nice to just up and leave when you are rich!

  54. Kim123 says:

    flotus -There were reports of this trip online on Monday, tweets , flight info, name of spa, etc. US weekly probably got most of the details from stuff I read Monday online . The only new info in US weekly story was the time of arrival. Also there were tweets of Brad back on set Mon night from a costar- a DJ.Also it wasn’t a vacation more like an extended “date night”Angie has mentioned before that they do these quick getaways once to a Motel 6.As someone mentioned before someone tweeted last night was Brad’s last day of filming.

  55. P.J. says:

    @Lisa T., I hear ya. It does seem like some people have it all, while most people are working so hard to stay afloat.

    Yes celebs lead the good life, but who knows what’s going on inside those pretty heads? We’ve seen so many couples who have talked and looked like they were so deeply in love, but wound up in divorce court a month later and in bed with somebody else a month after that!

    So I find it hard to take any celebrity romances seriously unless they’ve been happily married for about 25 years….

  56. Jessica says:

    Until they break up like Susan Sarandon or any of the other long-term Hollywood romances that end?

  57. Lisa Turtle says:

    @ P.J.

    I disagree. I think most couples that we see are usually complaining. Often the target of their complaints are gossip websites, the paparazzi, tabloids, etc. Yet, all of these whiners have had it easier in the press. Brad and Angelina never complain about it. They just go on living their lives, they are content; it’s as if they are living in a different universe. I can’t really think of any other couple that falls into that category.

  58. P.J. says:

    @Jessica — So true! Even the longtime marriages break up. Must be something in that Hollywood air.

    @Lisa T. — I agree, Brad & Angelina are living in a different universe. But I wouldn’t make assumptions about their personal feelings. They can look happy but we don’t really know what their private thoughts are, and as I said, I’ve turned into a skeptic now because I’ve heard so many celebs gush about their undying love only to crash & burn the next week, proving that what they said couldn’t have been honest. I believe that most things celebs say are part of their PR branding program.

    This is why I like CB! She questions the BS.

  59. anonymous says:

    Lil Viv is a riot, she is so cute: Hoding her nail polished hand to keep her hair our of her face! Brad and Angie have little giants if you’all didn’t notice they natural kids are huge! Over fed.

  60. Wholesome1 says:

    Love them!

  61. Wholesome1 says:

    Love them!

  62. Sakyiwaa says:

    “Lil Viv is a riot, she is so cute: Hoding her nail polished hand to keep her hair our of her face! Brad and Angie have little giants if you’all didn’t notice they natural kids are huge! Over fed.”


    i love those two…but i don’t believe US Weekly. i’m glad it’s a positive story though.

  63. Kim123 says:

    The trip happened US Weekly got the times wrong as usual .Ground Control @JJ can track private planes . Angie’s plane arrived at the AZ airport@ 2:49p, Brad’s plane arrived at 4:49p .You can track a private plane using Internet flight tracking service like flight aware.All you need is the Tail Registration Number of the aircraft.AndraSWChapman tweeted that BP heading to LA signed his boarding pass at the NOLA airport yesterday.

  64. Majosha says:

    @Kim123: So you’re tracking the exact time their planes land? Doesn’t that seem a tad excessive to you? Why the need to pin down their every move? If Brad or Angie read your post, I think they’d be far more disturbed than flattered.

  65. Katherine M. says:

    Don’t get your panties in a twist. Anybody can check plane arrivals and departures at airports around the world on the internet. It’s public info. All Kim was doing was refuting the once again erroneous info about the Jolie Pitts published by people with the same access. So stop harassing Kim with your accusations.

  66. Majosha says:

    @Katherine: What accusations? Kim, herself, admitted in her post that she was tracking the JP’s flights, and I think that’s odd. Because, frankly, the only reason I’d have to check the departure/arrival times of a flight is when someone I KNOW PERSONALLY is on said flight, and I want to arrive to pick them up on time, etc. But if you people want to continue stalking this family from afar, go right ahead. *backs away slowly*

  67. Camille says:

    Good for them, if this story is true. Gorgeous couple. :D

  68. Amityvillelives says:

    I can’t believe it. A positive story from US Weekly where they are not kissing Jen’s butt and demonising Jolie with stories of breakup fights and violence. It even has a positive story on her! Hell has frozen over and turned into the North Pole.

  69. sbg says:

    I don’t mind that they’re rich and fly all over the place. But the truth is, Angelina is an attention hooch. She would not be with Brad this long without the fact that she “took” him away from Debbie Reynolds…oops, I mean Jennifer A. She has to make sure she keeps getting attention. Look at all the beautiful actresses with great charisma and don’t get “followed” as much as they do.
